Best quotes from the chatroom

“Asset management is the hot spin class of the security world.” –
Jacob Horne, sr. cybersecurity consultant, CMTC

“It’s obvious we are in a growing skills gap as an industry and our ability to train quickly enough from time to hire is still improving.” – Danny Saldivar, business development specialist, Cloud Range

Saldivar went on to quote Bobby Dominguez (CISO of City National Bank) and Juan-Gomez Sanchez (CISO of Lennar) who make a great point that we’ve almost brought about this skills gap through our increased focus on hiring for product knowledge rather than skill set.

“All tools have strengths and weaknesses. Delving into each tool to get to the desired end configuration is what matters.” – Jason Dance, systems architect, Greenwich Associates

“If no one has solved the fundamentals, how do we know they’re really fundamental? Maybe it’s just impossible advice we continually repeat to each other.” – Jim MacLeod, technical product marketing, Indeni
